I'm new to sportspetting and was trying to figure out how i should interpretate picking results but don't come to a clue, so i thought lets post the question in this nice forum (which was already very helpfull).

My question is:

How can you say that a result of 55% of your picks, or a streak of 40-20-3 (am i right that the 3 in this is void or cancelled games?) is good, without knowing the mean of the odds?

I'm sure that i can pick 80% right at odds of 1,1, but I would of course still be loosing. So without the odds the numbers have no meaning? Or am I missing somtehing that is very obvious to the more experienced?

Thanx for the answer,

Agam
